Gallery of Jeff's Solar Setup
Tamz left this testimonial on Facebook of how he managed to recover his solar batteries that were no longer able to accept a charge. In the image you would note how he has hooked up the 24V Infinitum Desulfator in parallel with two 12V batteries that are hooked up to make up 24V.
The testimonial is a mix of Filipino and English. Below is the translation:
Mike from Philippines successfully revived his solar batteries which at 4-years-old began to show a significant drop in performance. Mike placed the desulfator into action having promptly received his order. Here is the English translation from the Facebook testimonial he posted:

16 x 200ah batteries in series/parallel to 24v are the heart of my off grid solar system.
I'm running 240v power and 24v lighting off these batteries and believe me with 3 teenage kids and their electronic devices, induction stove, fridge, freezer, coffee machine, tv's etc. the system gets loaded up every day.
So the investment in batteries adds up to about Aud $12,000, and the investment in Infinitum desulfators equates to about Aud $600. It really is a no brainer, so much protection for so little outlay.
My batteries are in excellent condition, and continue to perform, we're in the middle of winter right now, with limited PV input hours. I fire up the backup generator about once a month, just to make sure it's ready if needed, apart from that, these batteries have no other input.
Last winter we didn't need the generator, so far this winter we haven't needed it either. I'm confident the system is providing my family's needs and the desulfators are an integral part of that system.

We received an order for 100 12V Infinitum Desulfators for yet another solar street light installation in Papua, Indonesia. In the first Papua solar street light project spanning a period of one year from June 2012, 800 solar street lights were installed in several towns in this easternmost part of Indonesia. Each street light was powered by a 12V 100AH battery with a our desulfators installed.
Following on the success of the initial projects, the Indonesian government decided to extend the use of this form of street lighting made even more eco-friendly by the optimized battery life span, to Manokwari, the capitol city of the province of West Papua. With an initial installation of 100 street lights, this city is headed towards a greener and cleaner environment, essential to its tourist-driven economy.
"I revived my 4 to 5 year old portable Century Jumper 850 jump starter battery with the Infinitum battery desulfator. I am so convinced that I am also using it on my deep cycle solar batteries"

"A scrapped battery I purchased for A$5.00 in April 2012 is still functioning today!
My son and I have not bought a new battery for at least three years,
and none of our batteries have died since fitting the units."
Toyota Landcruiser and Scrapped Battery Optimised
As far as performance of the Infinitum desulfators, I have one on each of the two batteries in my Toyota Landcruiser. One of the batteries was about 5 years old and probably near the end of its life, when I fitted the first unit (desulphator) in March 2012. This battery is still starting the cruiser.
The other battery is one I picked up outside a tyre service for scrap price of $5.00. I immediately fitted a desulphator and it is still running my 12 volt fridge/freezer as well as auxiliary starting. That was in April 2012.
